According to the Canon feature chart I have here; the 540EZ Speedlite flash is not compatible with the Digital Rebel XT in ETTL mode. The 480EG is also not compatible. The 550 or any of the others in that product line are would work. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Hi, I have a Canon Speedlite 430EX II. I use it with Canon Rebel T1i. I don't really know a lot about using an external flash, I'm just an amateur I must say. I just always have it on automatic mode and...

Okay big breath, The Rebel T1i controls the flash (one reason you turn the flash on and off that's it) so you may have simply switched metering modes, with flash you should be on Evaluative mode.

Another thing is the camera may have been programed for TTL in the Menu E-TTL is the "normal" but if it's changed then the changes stays until you change it back.

I think it's the metering mode but if not you need to go into the camera Menu, Flash Control, External Flash, Flash Mode then select E-TTL. I found this all in a PDF manual of the Rebel T1i pages 139 through 141.

Hope this was a help.

Hello, I have a Canon 350D, Digital Rebel XT. For some reason my flash will not pop up, and when I manually push it up and try to take a picture, it won't flash. Does anyone know how to fix this type...

Okay there is a fix for this but it requires slightly removing the hot shoe. The camera thinks there is an accessory in the hot shoe therefor will not pop up. The fix for a qualified repair person is simple and it's fairly inexpensive however, that said if you don't know what you are doing then you could burn out the flash circuitry. Yes an external flash will work and give you much better performance then the internal flash, when getting a flash make sure it's an EX type to properly sync with the new TTL and I-TTL flash.

DOES THIS FLASH WORK ON CANON REBEL XSI?

Yes and no. It will work fine as a manual flash, putting the burden of figuring out correct exposure on your shoulders. It will work fine in the automatic modes on a Nikon camera.

Quantaray makes a Canon version of the flash which will work in the automatic modes on the Rebel XSi.

I have a canon digital rebel xt with a speedlite 200e flash. The flash is not working in full auto mode, although the built in flash is. I have replaced the batteries in the flash and the ready light comes...

In auto mode, the flash works only if it is necessary. You are saying that the flsah doesn't work in auto mode, and I assume that in other modes it's working properly. That means there is nothing wrong with the flash. So don't worry about the flash, it will fire in necessary, in full auto mode.
